We can install this app with .run available in download page but missing "cron" is require in the system
-> check in software center the "Dcron" package. After that, Timeshift can start
@aldoiljazi Latest version as of today, 16.10.6
More details here about the 16.10 series release, which introduced new UI: http://www.teejeetech.in/2016/10/timeshift-v16105.html
Derp, there are no manpages for timeshift.
For the cron workaround I made a systemd timer, which starts 10 min after boot and then every 60 min.
The timer runs "timeshift --check" and triggers the snapshot if necessary.
There is only one bug, if the systemd timer is triggered and timeshift-gtk is open timeshift --check fails with the error "timeshift is already running"
@JoshStrobl Do you know why timeshift is not working with dcron, maybe we can find a better workaround or fix?
If you try to open timeshift-gtk while a snapshot is running, you get the same "Timeshift is already running" message. It seems the behavior is not a bug but a feature.
Any update on the status for this package? Timeshift is quite unique as there aren't other system backup tools that work as well as Timeshift. Anything needed for inclusion?
